vortrefflichkeit/exzellente oder hervorragende leistungen durch disziplin


Explanation:
hello grant,

i agree to the first two suggestions made. the only question is if you want to emphasize the fact that it is a coat of arms on which you probably would find "vortrefflichkeit" or that it is related to you workplace in which case "exzellente Leistungen/Hervorragende Leistungen durch Disziplin" would be the appropriate expression in my view.
